The Leftovers Series Finale: “The Book of Nora”

Jun 6, 2017

I confess that Nora was my least favorite character throughout the entire Leftovers series. I don’t know why; I felt she was too stiff, too rigid and devoid of any emotion. Then again, I...

Last week, we saw the guys finally come moments away from everything they have worked for: butt loads and butt loads of money. But much in Pied Piper fashion, it would be ripped out from under...

The Pack Survives: HBO Drops Game of Thrones Trailer  #2

Yesterday, HBO dropped it’s second full-length trailer for Game of Thrones. With only twenty-four days to go until the premiere of Season 7 of HBO’s award-winning fantasy series, expectation and excitement are at an all-time high as fans prepare for what looks to be an amazing season. With the arrival of winter,  some recognize personal feuds must be put aside in order to survive, while others remain stubborn in their bid for power, pleasure, and personal gain. Above it all, dragons soar and the indefatigable White Walkers creep steadily southward. Winter is here. The game of thrones wages ever on, but the war for survival...

Damon Lindelof Developing WATCHMEN Next For HBO!

Damon Lindelof Developing WATCHMEN Next For HBO!

Damon Lindelof left us three seasons of THE LEFTOVERS and now needs another project for HBO and is now considering WATCHMAN. Yeah, we know, it excited a few of us around here too. But it is not a sure bet yet. We reported on the whole concept way back on 10.16.15. At that time Zach Snyder, the director of the 2009 movie adaptation of the comics, was on board. That clearly fell through. However, upon Lindelof’s conclusion of his latest acclaimed series, HBO offered him WATCHMEN. It is owned by Warner Bros., the parent company, so it was just sitting around to be picked up again anyway. Lindelof jumped at the chance apparently and the...

ROOM 104 Drops A Trailer Worth Looking At

ROOM 104 Drops A Trailer Worth Looking At

With a debut coming on July 28 at 11:00pm HBO thought it wise to show us a trailer for ROOM 104. After all, it does want us to get excited for and invested in the next project the Duplass brothers have to offer. It will have a 12 episode run Friday nights at 11:00pm. Let’s take a peek at what they offer: I hate to use a cliché, but “If these walls could talk” sure does apply here. It looks from all appearances to be your typical motel room in anywhere USA, but what is revealed beyond those leading seconds show us that Room 104 has seen some life. There are young men and old couples and staff in and out for starters. What else? As the...

Bruce Lee’s WARRIOR Comes To Cinemax

Bruce Lee’s WARRIOR Comes To Cinemax

Way back in May of 2015 we mentioned that Justin Lin was interested in creating a crime drama called WARRIOR for Cinemax. What made this concept most exciting was that it was based on the writings of martial arts icon Bruce Lee. Now two years later we can report that that series is a certainty. Though Lin (TRUE DETECTIVE Season 2) is still a producer the showrunner will be Jonathan Tropper (BANSHEE). Here are details via a press release: CINEMAX has picked up the straight-to-series drama WARRIOR, it was announced by Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and CINEMAX Programming. Starting production on its ten-episode season this fall in...

Silicon Valley: “Hooli-Con”

Silicon Valley: “Hooli-Con”

Last week, we saw the guys finally come moments away from everything they have worked for: butt loads and butt loads of money. But much in Pied Piper fashion, it would be ripped out from under their feet almost as soon as they put a smile on their weary faces. If I have learned anything from this show, it is that the venture capitalist world in the Valley is a scary, scary place.  But the boys didn’t plan on being down and out for long. And having balls roughly the size of a freaking planet, Richard decides to start skirting ethical boundaries. Now, this is nothing new for Guilfoyle. In fact, he embraces the dark side. But Dinesh...

HBO Comedy Special T.J. MILLER: METICULOUSLY RIDICULOUS

HBO Comedy Special T.J. MILLER: METICULOUSLY RIDICULOUS

Off the bat, we can say that this is T. J. Miller in your face and interacting with those who dare to make eye contact with him. His first HBO comedy special was filmed in his hometown of Denver, Colorado at the Paramount Theater. Here is what HBO tells us about the artist & the show: Comedian and actor T.J. Miller, who stars in HBO’s hit series Silicon Valley, takes to the stage to showcase his irreverent humor in his first HBO comedy special. T.J. Miller: Meticulously Ridiculous was taped in September 2016 at the Paramount Theater in Miller’s hometown, Denver, CO. The special highlights Miller’s high-energy absurdism and...

Movie Review: “The Conjuring 2”

Movie Review: “The Conjuring 2”

Real life husband and wife Ed and Elaine Warren became famous for investigating high-profile cases of the paranormal, most notably The Amityville case. In their 2013 film, The Conjuring, director James Wan and writers Chad and Carey Hayes focused on the Perron family haunting in Rhode Island. After sitting out the 2014 spinoff prequel film Annabelle, Wan and the Hayes return for The Conjuring 2, once again focusing on the Warrens. This time, Ed and Elaine (played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, pictured) are called to the U.K. for a case that would later be known as The Enfield Poltergeist.  The poltergeist activity centers on the...

Game of Thrones Aftershow “After the Thrones” Canceled

Game of Thrones Aftershow “After the Thrones” Canceled

With just a little more than a month before Game of Thrones‘ Season Seven premiere, HBO has announced that its after-show After the Thrones hosted by television critics Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan will be canceled. After the Thrones debuted last year on HBO’s online digital platforms and met with a tepid response. Many criticized it for its simplistic, over exuberant format which was mainly aimed at the demographic of casual viewers of Game of Thrones who can’t keep characters’ names straight. The after-show mainly focused on simplifying and explaining major plot points from the GOT episodes which preceded it...

Silicon Valley: “The Keenan Vortex”

Silicon Valley: “The Keenan Vortex”

“The Keenan Vortex” begins by showing Erlich in a brand new position. Not only does he now have his own office in Bream Hall, but he also is best friends with the hottest commodity in the valley – Kennan Feldspar (Haley Joel Osment). However, in typical fashion, Erlich is not actually receiving any financial compensation for his work at Bream Hall, as he simply agreed to work for them so long as he as a desk and an official job title. It will definitely be interesting to see how Feldspar’s relationship with Erlich evolves over time, as I am sure there will be some complications to come. As Erlich seems to always end up getting the...

HBO Development Slate: Al Pacino as Joe Paterno, Julia Roberts & More

HBO Development Slate: Al Pacino as Joe Paterno, Julia Roberts & More

This post readily proves that both big name talents and up-&-coming ones alike can find a place on HBO if the quality of the project is just right. Here is a look at the latest projects in development starting with two big names.    Al Pacino Comes to HBO as Penn State’s Joe Paterno  It is safe to say that actor Al Pacino likes to get deep into character and has proven that time and again even on HBO. You have seen his roles in the HBO Films’ presentations PHIL SPECTOR from 2013, as Jack Kervorkian in YOU DON’T KNOW JACK from 2010 and as Ray Cohn in ANGELS IN AMERICA, right? Well, he is finally taking on another rich role...

Movie Review: “The Accountant”

Movie Review: “The Accountant”

At first I wasn’t sure what to make of this political yet mathematic thriller, but eventually, I got a little bit into it. With the great cast and decent concept, it makes a fairly interesting watch. Ben Affleck plays the main character, Christian Wolff, who is an accountant for drug cartels and criminals around the world. When he’s not kicking it criminal, he’s hanging out in his Airstream trailer with an original Renoir and Jackson Pollack. For work above board, he does normal accounting for normal people. But he’s the main target for the US Federal Treasury Department agent Ray King, played by J.K. Simmons (of...

HBO Documentary Films: IF YOU’RE NOT IN THE OBIT, EAT BREAKFAST

HBO Documentary Films: IF YOU’RE NOT IN THE OBIT, EAT BREAKFAST

Overview: “Every morning before having breakfast, I pick up my newspaper, get the obituary section, and see if I’m listed,” says comedy legend Carl Reiner. “If I’m not, I’ll have my breakfast.” The 95-year-old wonders why some of his friends died years ago, while others are still thriving, asking, “Was it luck, genes, modern medicine or are we doing something right?” In this heartwarming documentary, host Carl Reiner tracks down such celebrated nonagenarians and centenarians as Mel Brooks, 90, Dick Van Dyke, 91, Kirk Douglas, 100, Norman Lear, 94, and Betty White, 95, who show that the later years can truly be the happiest...

BALLERS Drops A Tease For Season Three

BALLERS Drops A Tease For Season Three

The Rock and company are back to make the deal and this time the goal is world domination starting with Las Vegas, Nevada. Say, what? That is correct it is right in the tease recently launched about the third season of Dwayne Johnson’s BALLERS. Give the fast-paced clip a look. Spencer Strasmore (Johnson) and Joe Krutel (Rob Corddry) are going all in now that the company has left the Miami scene and are now out on the West Coast. And they are out to expand the business, their stable of clients and their worth and apparently are willing to take all the risk they can to do it. But, who is all in for the ride? Don’t worry all the ballers...

Silicon Valley: “Patent Troll”

Silicon Valley: “Patent Troll”

The episode starts off with Richard visiting his medical “professional”. Let’s face it. Nobody that Richard interacts with could be considered professional. His doctor is no exception. While Richard is concerned about the possibility of getting an STD, his doctor is concerned about how Richard lost an inch off his height since last year he saw him. I wonder how much shorter he actually is because he didn’t even take his shoes off. Erlich tries to secure a job at Bream Hall after landing them a big client. In true Erlich fashion, he does whatever he can to get what he wants, including playing the sexism card. This leads to...

The Leftovers Series Finale: “The Book of Nora”

The Leftovers Series Finale: “The Book of Nora”

I confess that Nora was my least favorite character throughout the entire Leftovers series. I don’t know why; I felt she was too stiff, too rigid and devoid of any emotion. Then again, I have not suffered the sudden departure of a husband or children – and I would not be able to comprehend her grief and anger. She went from being an angry, lonely widow and grieving mother, to a  tougher woman who seemed to find some stability (in her relationship with Kevin Garvey Jr and her job) but at the end, she just spiraled into a dark descent. The fact that she wanted to go through with being zapped, just to be with her family, either...
